Educational Programs

The National Park Service at Historic Jamestowne offers educational programs for student groups. Our onsite programs are Walking Tours of the actual site of Jamestown.

RANGER GUIDED WALKING TOUR - Suggested grades: 4th –college. Experience Jamestown history where it happened: on the site of the first permanent English settlement in North America. Students will join a park ranger for a short outdoor walking tour. Classroom studies will be much enhanced by hearing stories from Virginia's past: the role of Chief Powhatan and his famous daughter in Jamestown history, the struggles of English settlers like John Smith and Christopher Newport, and the development of tobacco as Virginia's cash crop, leading to the eventual establishment of slavery. Primary sources, combined with the latest archeological discoveries, bring a four-century-old site to life. Maximum class size: 50 people per program. Program time: 30 –45 minutes. Focus of the program takes place near the Tercentenary Monument, waterfront, and the New Towne area.
